100% Membership

The foundation of a strong local chapter is for all marketing education students to be granted the opportunity to become DECA members. An active DECA chapter recognizes that all members can benefit at local activities. For this reason, chapters with 100% membership plan a program of local activities so all marketing education students can become DECA members, students learn to develop their leadership, civic, social, and career and technical skills at the local chapter level.

Michigan DECA defines 100% Membership as all students enrolled in all Marketing Education Classes taught by an individual teacher. This includes, but is not limited to, introductory courses, specialty courses (i.e. apparel, tourism, entrepreneurship) and management courses as well as general marketing education courses. 100% Membership recognition will not be given to those chapters who do not submit the completed 100% Membership Reporting Form by November 30.

To encourage and reward chapters for having 100% membership, Michigan DECA has developed the following recognition for chapters with 100% membership:
